I'm wondering how decent a shot I have at WashU, I applied RD.

Here are my stats:

1550 (800 M, 750V), 800/800/760/750/740, 3.7 unweighted GPA at supercompetitive Maryland Math/Science/Computer Science Magnet (4.6 weighted). No rank. AP Scholar with Honor (4 5s). National Merit Finalist.

ECs: co-captain of school Academic Bowl team, Managing News Editor of school newspaper that was recently named top 5 in the US by the National Scholastic Press Association, captain of school Science Bowl team that won Maryland Regional, black belt in karate.

I've also done scientific research projects each summer for the past 4 years, including a project in which I flew down to Jacksonville, FL with a team to do field research on hurricanes. I live in MD and am a caucasian male.

Have a feeling my recs were very good, good essay, and I think my interview went very well.

Please let me know what you think. Thanks so much!

I'm not so sure... the program I am in (of 100 students) is very competitive, and if I had to guess a rank within the program, I'd say I'm like #25-30. However, the program is immersed in a large urban public high school of 3000 students, so I'm easily in the top ten percent of my class.

Easily.

WUSTL is not hard to get into...unless maybe you're applying to the University Scholars Program.

I didn't apply to the University Scholars, but maybe I should have?

I got in :). Munchy -- WashU typically waitlists some overqualified candidates -- make sure Admissions knows that you're interested and you still have a very good chance.

Ruben -- I'm cocaptain of Blair's team. That kid Akshay has a foul mouth.
